Morning Keynote:

Unshelved: "Surviving the Public" Gene Ambaum, Cartoonist, Writer, Blogger and More

Gene Ambaum is so good at making fun of strange, difficult customers because he is the strangest, most difficult customer of all. He has worked as a YA librarian, staff development coordinator, and taught English overseas for years because no one criticized his spelling. In addition to eleven years of Unshelved comics he has also co-written an all-ages graphic novel, Poopy Claws, and a post zombie apocalypse parody, Fifty Shades of Brains (as BF Dealeo). Follow @ambaum.

Featuring: Priscilla Cummings, Jennifer Keats Curtis, Elisabeth Dahl, Michelle Ray, Jeri Smith-Ready, Laurel Snyder, Susan Stockdale, Suzanne Supplee, Elissa Weissman, Fred Bowen and more.
